Know of a family in crisis,trial, or grief and want to help but don’t know how? Check out Alongside: A Practical Guide for Loving Your Neighbor in their Time of Trial (www.alongsidebook.com), by Sarah Beckman. I’ve been involved with helping family, friends, and neighbors in crisis off and on through the years and highly recommend this book. It has everything I learned the hard way and wish I’d known earlier:
- Do I go, or not go?
- I want to take a meal: what kind, and how?
- The family has said no more meals, what can I do instead?
- Are there ways I can help that don’t require me to interact with the family?
- Whom do I contact for the family’s status?
and much more!
